Under Coach Westhead, Loyola Marymount University had the best scoring team in the nation -- 112.5 points per game, an all-time NCAA record. Loyola Marymount led the nation in scoring for three seasons and holds the all-time single game record of 181 points. This video demonstrates Coach Westhead's system of explosive basketball. His fast break system generates good shots each time down the court and with this you can outrun bigger and better opponents.
1990. 58 minutes.
Thoroughly enjoyed this and will be using many of the concepts therein in our own upcoming season.
The concept of running a pure fast break offence is fairly simple and Coach Westhead presents everything in a clear, concise way. I have no doubt when he says that players have to work exceptionally hard to make this approach a success but I have the sense that it can be worth it.
Kind of eerie watching that LMU team in its early manifestation, as we all know what eventually happened, but maybe that''s part of what makes this video a must-have in every coach''s library, whether you''re a "guru of go" yourself or not. I''m glad I purchased it.
There was some decent information and it was well explained. However, it does not demonstrate enough drills on implementing this for players who need to be drilled into understanding the concepts.Championship Productions replies:Coach, Thank you for your feedback.

The DVD does a great job of showing the famed Loyola Fastbreak from the late 80''s. The DVD is presented in a well organized manner and I like that he uses his own players, as opposed to using players from a coaching clinic. I find that DVD''s produced with a coach''s own players present better because the players know what it is the coach is trying to show. Time isn''t wasted trying to get players on the right page with the coach. I like to use parts of the Loyola break with my 9th grade girls team and I modify other parts to suit my needs.
I thought this was really well done. It's old school, but its a great system. I wish more time would have been spent on how to get into this system on a missed basket. When you can't predict where guys will be. That's the only way this video could have been better. Excellent
In my opinion this is the best transition, fast break video out on the market today. It is a numbered fast break with really good supportive drills.
We have used this very disciplined break as our offense and combine this with a full court trapping defense. It is easy to install and easier for the players to understand. Excellent!
This instructional video was very educational and an enjoyable watch. To see how hard his team ran on every drill is a true testament to why their system was so successful. For any coach that wants to implement a high octane, fast-break offensive system this is the DVD you want to learn from.
This DVD was very useful for learning fundamentals and individual breakdown drills. Westhead does a exceptional overview of the responsibilities of each player on the court. Overall, the video was pretty decent.
While the material isn't really new and is generally just the numbered fast break, Westhead does a thorough overview of the roles and responsibilities. The individual breakdown drills are useful as well.
Good video but it came in a sleeve. I expect more from Championship Productions. The DVD should at least come in a case. Very disappointing. 5 stars for video 1 start for Championship Productions.
I'd like to add something to the product description that mysteriously got left out. In between guiding Loyola Marymount to those fantastic, high-scoring seasons AND coaching the Phoenix Mercury to a WNBA championship, Coach Westhead also coached the L.A. Lakers to an NBA Championship (He preceded Pat Riley as Laker coach).
He's the only coach in history to win both a NBA and a WNBA Championship as a coach. Why that wasn't mention in the destription is beyond me.
